I would highly recommend this facility for conferences of any kind. The hotel and restaurant staff are extremely friendly, efficient in their jobs and helpful. The food is excellent giving choices for those who have special dietary needs. There was a wide variety of selections for all meals and the serving staff was quick and kept everything neat and clean.... More

I had an amazing time at the Banff Centre. I was part of a Leadership Residency for 3.5 days, and stayed 3 nights. Comfortable rooms, really incredible food at the Vistas Dining Room. Wonderful stay!!

There is always something going on at The Banff Centre. World-class artists are in residency during most of the year. Visiting faculty giving talks and presentations on a variety of cutting-edge media arts. More music concerts than you can attend at any one time, as well as film screenings, poetry readings, and gallery talks. I stayed there ten years ago... More

Just a short overnight trip to Banff. The Banff Centre is a great place for an overnight -- clean, comfortable accommodations away from the business of the townsite (and let's face it, Banff can be pretty busy on a Friday night!). The Centre is up on Tunnel Mountain, so you're above it all, and enjoy a glorious, secluded retreat with... More

Great to be IN the mountains and see wildlife. There are many hikes right from the door step and a wonderful buffet in the Vistas Dining Room. The staff were friendly and helpful. A relaxing time with nature.

Great place to check for accommodations, especially helpful if downtown Banff is booked. A small arts campus up the road from downtown. Convenient access to Tunnel Mountain trail. The Vistas restaurant on campus is Especially great.

The Banff Centre charges a premium price but does not offer premium accommodations. The room was very clean and well maintained which surprised me after walking down a filthy hallway. The bathroom sink did not drain properly. I figure at $300+ per night, maintenance would be a given. I liked the natural way the hotel was landscaped, no manicured lawns... More

A good hotel, but not a good value - way too expensive for the good comfort that it offers. Maybe it is a way to subsidize the good works done for the community ... The nature here is the principal character and theviews, the fresh air, the beautiful clouds, are all still free if you can afford to pay for... More

The Banff Centre provides an excellent location for small conferences and professional development. The rooms are spacious, environmentally conscious, and well located for the various conference facilities at the Banff Centre. There are different types of rooms, with the nicest being in the Professional Development Center; all rooms are typically available only for conference attendees. Guests have access to the... More

Great location, excellent value compared to similar quality accommodations in Banff. Clean. Very comfortable beds. Rooms are a decent size. Gorgeous views. Helpful, pleasant staff. Free wifi. The weather was very warm and there is no air conditioning in the rooms, but we had a fan and that was sufficient to keep the room at a pleasant temperature for sleeping.... More
